There aren’t many puzzlers that make you think about gaming in completely different ways. Baba is You is definitely one of them – a breath of fresh air in an often fusty genre.
The game is all about manipulating the rules, pushing words around to create new sentences that alter how the world around you works. It’s ingenious in so many ways that you really have to play it to understand it.
This is an experience that’s packed full of eureka moments, little sparks of success and realization that push you onto the next challenge with a satisfied smile on your face.
It might look simple, but there’s a level of complexity here that will have you scratching your head in the most pleasurable ways. It builds on its ideas, then shifts the ground under you, blocking the obvious and forcing you to think outside of the structures you’re used to being boxed in by.
Baba Is You is a bright, engaging and gloriously intelligent puzzle game that is only too happy to abandon the rules. In fact, that’s sort of the point, and this mobile version is a great way to play it.
